    If this is Joesph, RIP young man…I’m sure you were as nice kid as my own autistic 21 year old.

    To these two sub humans, a special corner of hell awaits you…

    It says it is believed to be Joseph. Until otherwise noted in the news media I will continue to pray it is not him.
    Anyone who hurts anybody (but especially a special needs person) will receive what is coming to them when they meet their maker. Whatever that may be is not for me to decide.
